I can't get past Obama inviting Donnie McClurkin on his swing throug the south tour. I can't swallow his alliance with an avowed “ex-gay” determined to convert/heal me from my sexual orientation. It is a very personal issue for me.
That being said, Obama has an interesting interview with The Advocate. Everyone should follow the link and read it. Now The Advocate isn't the same thing as real life engagement with the LGBTQ community. But he does make good commitments. Except for an inclusive version of ENDA. He supports it, but doesn't think it can pass. Sounds like the HRC to me.
I could go on for paragraphs about how turned off I am by the Obama campaign and the majority of Obama supporters that I know. But the important thing is that Obama gave an interview to a significant press outlet in the LGBTQ community and we should pay attention.
Please read it.
